Getting to Barajas by Bus

The bus stops are located at T4 on the ground floor at Arrivals, at T1 on the ground floor opposite the baggage reclaim hall 2 and at T2 the bus stop can be found on the ground floor opposite baggage reclaim hall 5.

Line 200 buses run a shuttle service between Avenida de America to the airport and vice versa.
